This could include census returns, church register transcripts, bishop's transcripts, churchwardens accounts, overseers accounts, land tax records, postal directory extracts, church & village histories, in fact anything our volunteers can find which other researchers may find interesting.
If you would be interested in helping make these vital records available, please click one of the links at the side of this page for more information or to volunteer - the more help we get the faster the information will be available to all!
This site will only be as good as the contributions received from you!
Please help to make the project a success by contributing your transcriptions - records, wills or any other information relevant to Sussex parishes.
This site is organised according to the boundaries of the 1974 local government counties of 'East Sussex' and 'West Sussex' as there are two County Records Offices holding the source documents, at Chichester for West Sussex and Lewes for East Sussex.s are supported by many people who submit transcribed records but who dont have the time or resources to take on a parish themselves, so even if you only have a few hours a month to spare and have access to some source information, please get in touch.
Archaeological evidence points to prehistoric dwellers in the area.
Scholars think that the Roman settlement of Mutuantonis was here, as quantities of artefacts have been discovered in the area.
An project started in Cornwall and was then taken up by Devon and Dorset. The scheme is intended to assist those who are researching their familial connections to a particular parish and who would otherwise struggle to gain access to the information in records offices or elsewhere.
Although there is a strong focus on genealogical information, the Sussex site also aims to include any historical information relating to Sussex.
